With December upon us the joys of Christmas are here! Good food, good drinks, fancy lights and far too many hangovers.
Yes, the hangovers are pretty bad, but there's something worse... Christmas music.
My original post was supposed to be a collection of Christmas music that isn't cheesy and cringe. I searched high and low. Run DMC do a pretty good song, as do Motorhead and The Ramones. But to be honest they're all pretty bad. I couldn't do it. I failed. Christmas music blows.
We had to come up with a new mission. Thankfully this one was much easier.
2019 has been such a sweet year for music and I've hardly scratched the surface. But what I have discovered has been pretty damn good. Most of my evenings are spent folding and packing t-shirts. In order to keep me sane I need good music. So I've put together a little collection of my favourite releases of 2019.
For me there were two standout albums this year. The biggest has got to be Tyler's IGOR. I've thrashed this album since it was released. I can't even pick a favourite song from it, but the opening track is a killer.
While IGOR was the biggest, the best for me was Fontaines D.C and their debut album Dogrel. So many good tunes. Catchy, raw and powerful. I can only imagine how good these guys would be live. If I don't catch them next year I'll be pissed.
Other favourite albums for folding t-shirts this year has been UK standouts from Slow Thai, Sleaford Mods, Little Sims, Michael Kiwanuka and Murder Capital.
So find our little playlist below and please let us know who we missed! AND if anyone can change my mind and name 3 really good Christmas songs there will be prize!
